Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

The only thing that makes the spindle box special is that it illustrates the concept of "zero" pretty well. Otherwise I like using the cards & counters (so much easier to make) and the bead stair for counting.

I'd love to see a picture of your spindle box, though!

I'll try to post a picture of my Spindle Box of Shame this weekend. I was so excited to make it and in such a hurry; I don't know what I was thinking. It's bad... truly Montessori gone awry. To give you a hint... I forgot to start with zero

Oh, you are too hard on yourself, do you know how many things I have thrown in the trash because they didn't *turn out* properly    Bless you for wanting to share it with us, and then, forget about it
